In the News

Big Sunday has always gotten lots of great publicity, for which we’re really grateful. We've been covered on the front page of the Los Angeles Times, La Opinion and The Daily News. We've also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, on NBC Nightly News, and in countless community, ethnic and religious publications. We’ve selected some of our favorites from over the years for you to read, as well as listed most of our coverage from 2010. If you’d like to see even more, click on “In The News Archive,” at the bottom of this page.

And check back here soon to see some of the many news stories and videos from BSW 2014! (There are so many great ones to choose from, we're still sorting through them to highlight the best.)
